thousands. experts believe that the vat a reflection of more unemployed people coming off of the sidelines and getting back in the job search now that more businesses are hiring. keep in mind not everyone is hiringing. we reported last month that san jose's largest employer is getting ready to lay off 6500 employees worldwide. a huge chunk laid off here in the south bay. >> tough numbers to hear. thank you. what about the numbers when it comes to the forecast? we need a ray of sunshine. >> much easier on the ears this morning. we've got comfortable weather for you. 70s for the most part. the warmest spot in the bay area, the places and the outlying areas like gilroy, livermore, even concord, you guys will only be in low 80s. beautiful conditions. provided by that marine air. we have a pretty gep deep marine

as a result the 74,000 airport construction workers and faa workers were going to be left for a month without a paycheck. congress is gone but the leaders worked it out. in about an hour they are going to reopen the senate briefly so they can do this quickly by unanimous consent. essentially extending funding through september 16 until they come back and deal with the issue. the issues are republicans don't want to see $16.5 million in government subsidies going to about a dozen small airports. democrats want to take out language they say would make it hard for airport workers to unionize. at this point we had been losing $30 million a day in airport taxes. the airline collected the money, just by raising fees but now they will give some of that money back. >> thank you very much. it's 5:43 now. new images of the two men possibly linked to two murders in east palo alto. take a look. police want to talk to

jim mathison during a confrontation at the home of hallerin's ex-girlfriend. they didn't review documents including restraining orders from his ex-wife and girlfriend. investigators did not turn over the documents because they didn't seem relevant to the drug charges. >> 5:45 now. friends and family will say final farewell today to a man some dubbed as san francisco's bad santa. an irish wake at lefty o'doole's for 69-year-old john thome found dead in his hotel room last week. he was a long time santa at macy's union square before making headlines when he was fired for telling racy jokes to adult shoppers. lefty o'doole's hired him. above will be a banner that reads "santa john's gone to the
